Hello, and welcome to the Skeptical Sailor! I regret to say that I have decided to discontinue writing here, as I’ve come to realize that the sailing life isn’t really for me after all. (That’s the short version; the much longer explanation starts here.) However, I haven’t given up writing, and if you’re interested in travel and other such adventures, I encourage you to check out my current site Trapped in Paradise. Thank you, and I hope to see you soon!
